Luke Bather - 18th July 2016

Jake Schreier, perhaps best known for his feature films Robot & Frank and Paper Towns recruits Kanye West and Justin Vernon of Bon Iver to assist Francis and the Lights in this super-minimal one-take video.

A camera creeps around a huge black and white expanse of a set as Kanye, Francis and Justin each take turns with surreal movements, sparse lip sync and a very small amount of choreography. It's minimal to the Nth degree and manages to look nonchalantly cool in the process.
